Here are some organizing tips for your closet.
Place baskets in your closet for laundry and dry cleaning.
Sort through, bag and donate anything you don’t wear anymore to a local charity. This includes clothes that are no longer in fashion, no longer fit, or you haven’t worn in a year. Also, get rid of those worn-out and/or uncomfortable shoes you no longer wear.
Separate your clothes by season. If you have a tall closet with several rows of hanging rods, place the current season’s clothes on the lowest level, and move out-of-season clothes up to the tallest rods.
Categorize your clothes by purpose: Work, casual, cold- or hot-weather wear and formal.
Gather all of your unused wire hangers (remember Joan Crawford!) and take them to the dry cleaners to recycle.
Hang scarves on a hanger or scarf rack, and belts and ties on hangers or racks.
Use a shoe rack to keep shoes organized. Recycle old shoe boxes that clutter the floor. (You don’t need to keep every pair of shoes in your closet all year long, either!)
Install hooks on the closet wall to hang up hats, handbags and tote bags.
Store clothes that you want to save in a vacuum-sealed plastic bag. These bags compress the clothing, making it much easier to fit under the bed or in a closet. Save only the clothes that you think will be worn!
